HMNS Sugar Land Digital Dome Theater

Digital Dome Theater 

In the one of a kind Digital Dome Theater in Sugar Land, visitors can explore a world of different fun and educational themes with a different show scheduled every half hour.

Embark on space missions to black holes, explore the distant worlds of our solar system, pilot a nano-scale submarine inside the human body or dive into an R.O.V. deep inside the ocean. You can even sing along with Big Bird and Elmo as they learn about the night time sky!

Recent up-grades to our planetarium projection system have created brighter and clearer images which completely fill the entire dome screen space. Surround sound has also been added for the total theater experience. These upgrades were made possible by a generous grant from The George Foundation.

Maximum capacity is 60 adults and children, and seating is available in chairs or on the floor. We accommodate visitors of all levels of ability/mobility.

Available Shows Include:

Black Holes
Body Code    
Dawn of the Space Age    
Dinosaur Prophecy           
Earth's Wild Ride 
Ice Worlds     
Impact Earth  
Life in the Universe
